La Marzocco Linea Micra

Did it stop the shot or go into standby mode? Because there is an auto stop/maximum shot time of 1 minute. But I did remember mine shutting off once after just pulling a shot. But it hasn't occurred a 2nd time

Peet's fancier stuff?

Sadly, grocery store coffee is all about the brand and label, not about the quality. A lot of "good" brands have a grocery line they pump out. Target recently added Blue Bottle in my area. They only say "bright" on one and "bold" on the other. The actual bags are made out of cheaper material. At

I'm curious what caused KS to take it down? Must have been something more than a bad value proposition for backers. A lot of the copy looks like it was AI generated especially the "about us" and the "about the creator" section. Good to see KS looks into companies at least a little bit to help reduce

Mazzer Mini Alignment

I have had a Mazzer Mini doser for about 20 years, noticed that it produces a lot of fines when grinding for drip. Just replaced the burrs with new Mazzers and still the same issue. I am using a sifter but that wastes a lot of coffee. I just noticed something strange regarding the burrs contacting each other. Let's say

What is the point of 3 hole steamer on La Pavoni Europiccola and a new owner's recipe.

So I've made a one hole steamer tip from stainless and.... I don't like it I measured the holes on the original tip to be 1.2 so I used 1.1mm drill and it turned out I should've used a smaller one. I'm back to overheating my milk before it finishes making microfoam. I guess the angle

A second grinder to the EG1

I will agree with Erik and John, being you have the EG1 put a set of ultra burrs in it and use it for brew and occasional light roast espresso. Kafatek MC6 for any range otherwise for espresso. If you are purely light, filter roast espresso the MAX with SLM burrs would be best and paired with an MC6 for

Home roasting, why?

You may love it or you may find it a chore. It is a hobby not unlike cooking or baking since you get to consume the end result. I have found that after watching hours of YouTube and taking a couple of classes combined with a conscious effort to "get good" at roasting, it wasn't long before the
